​Can I change my Personal Access Code (PAC) that I use to log into online and mobile banking?

Yes. Log in to online banking and click on Profile and Preferences under the Account Services section. There you will be able to change your Personal Access Code. First, enter your current PAC, then enter your new PAC and verify it by entering it again. A safe access code consists of eight characters and combines letters and numbers.

Please note – if you forget your password or if you are locked out of your online account, you will have to call our Members Solutions Centre at 1-800-616-8878 or visit your branch to reset your PAC.
